5:31 am
homes and to keep their doors locked. not only here in watertown, but also surrounding areas clean iding boston. this is an unprecedented move. this is all because of a man hunt that is under way for a suspect considered armed and dangerous. police calling that suspect a terrorist connected with the bombings from the boston marathon on monday. that suspect is still on the loose and the brother of that suspect we're told was killed earlier today in a shootout here just a couple blocks away from where i am here in watertown. we have learned a little bit about the suspects this morning. as mentioned they are brothers. they are from the russian caucuses moved to kazakhstan at a young age and have been here in the u.s. far couple of years. we do know the older brother studied at bunker hill community college and in a website posting under his name he said quote, i don't have a single american friend. so that is what we know at this
5:32 am
point about those suspects and of course as mentioned the area is still on lock down. cab services has been suspended in the area including boston. amtrak service suspended and there is no traffic being allowed in and out of watertown at this point. so really things are at a standstill as authorities search for the suspects. >> what are you hearing about -- we heard they could be surrounding a particular outdoor mall where you are and there is also a chance they think the the other suspect might be back in newton, massachusetts or cambridge? it's a big area they are searching at this point; right? >> reporter: this is a very big area. and there are a lot of reports out there right now. but what we do know and what we can confirm is that there are thousands up to 9,000 law enforcement officers. we're talking swat team members, tactical teams, bomb
5:33 am
squad members, local, state, federal police all on the hunt for this suspect. the hunt has been going on for several hours now and it continues. really this is a very active, fluid situation at this point. >> all right pam brown there in watertown, massachusetts which certainly is the hub of a lot 06 this activity. we will continue to check back in with you throughout the morning. time now 5:32. we continue our team coverage of the boston bombing story with ktvu claudine wong she is in our newsroom now with the extra details. claudine. >> reporter: that is right. there is so many different areas we are watching right now. i want to take you back out lye to the scene in another area. we just saw pam brown in one neighborhood. this is a different part of watertown, massachusetts. the camera is moving around a little bit because a lot is going on. as you take a look at this street nothing is coming in and out of there because obviously they have shut down traffic to this whole area. you have swat teams going from door to door making sure the
5:34 am
area is secure. it looks like there is some activity. we have been watching this live picture for a little bit here. some activity. it looks like they have their attention focused on one area. they have been going around in different neighborhoods debt stating suspicious -- detonating suspicious packages. you've got to get a really good idea how big this area has been. this is a new picture that was released in the last half hour of the suspect. this is the man identified as 19-year-old if tsarnaev. he's been in living in cambridge in the past year. he is armed and dangerous and called a terrorist by police, authorities. they want to find him immediately. very concerned right now about the safety of that neighborhood. take a look on your screen now. these are the two suspects. these are the pictures that authorities released yesterday. the man on your left his name
5:35 am
is tarmalan tsarnaev. and on the right that is the man they are still looking for right now. now there was a press conference just a short time ago. governor spoke. the police commissioner was there urging everyone to stay inside of their homes as this massive man hunt is under way. let's listen to what the governor had to say. >> we are asking people to shelter in place. in other words to stay indoors with their doors locked and not to open the door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officer and that applies here in watertown where we are right now. also cambridge, newton, belmont, and at this point all of boston. >> reporter: we want to take you back out live to the scene because there is a lot of activity there. you can see state police officers rolling through that area. you see the buses on your
5:36 am
screen those buses have been used to bring scores of law enforcement officers into these neighborhoods. because again they have been shut down to traffic. any vehicle you are seeing moving right now belongs to law enforcement that is going through there and making sure that they are clearing up that situation. now we are hearing from that scene that you are looking at right now in that area that there is the smell of smoke in the area. it looks like fbi and atf. so many federal authorities. it looks like there is activity there and we are certainly keeping an eye on that. it's hard to tell if this is significant or not because we have seen them rush through several neighborhoods this morning. that is obviously a large police presence right there and what they have been doing all morning is really going house to house. as they clear it you can almost see when you have been out in similar situations but any kind of swat activity by their body language when things are clear.
5:37 am
when we see a lot of mass activity in that area it certainly alerts us and makes us look a lot closer. this is one of the areas we are trying to figure out if this is a significant development or is this something they are concerned about. they did say earlier that they believe the search would take hours. again we have seen several police cars go through that neighborhood. we have seen swat on stand by. we are keeping an eye on that. we want to remind you how we got here. the pictures we showed you earlier of the suspects those were released last night at 5:15. and literally an hour and a half later you had the convenient store robbery where the campus officer from mit was killed. then you had a carjacking. they believe they carjacked a man. got away from that scene and then you had another shootout. we just see an officer going inside that home. it looks like where their
5:38 am
attention has been -- it looks like someone went into that building. you still have a large police presence around that area. and now they are walking someone out. this is what they have been doing all morning long. once they clear that house they have been walking the residents out. methought sure if they are evac- - i'm not sure if they have been evacuating those folks. they are still kind of hunkered down out there depending on which officer you are looking at and they have obviously really converged on this area. remember the two suspects are believed to have lived in the cambridge area for at least a year. there are some reports two years maybe studying and going to school. the one 19 still at large. the other is 26 years old and was killed. they have familiarity with these neighborhoods and that is why they are work their way through. we are getting new information
5:39 am
that a u.s. law enforcement official and the uncle of these two suspects confirming their identities. these three law enforcement officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity did confirm they are brothers. of course that is what we have been hearing as they travel from chechnya. that is the latest information coming in. all we can do is keep an eye on the situation. we are focused on this area now but keep in mind this is a scene that is playing out in so many neighborhoods across the boston area and that is why it is very difficult to get information in that is why the governor and the police commissioner warned everyone throughout the boston metro area to stay inside. they believe the man they are searching for is extremely dangerous. obviously capable of a lot of violence. we will keep an eye on things here in the newsroom. if anything changes we will keep you updated and alerted and any activity we will keep
5:40 am
an eye on and have the very latest for you of course on the ktvu morning news. the father of a teenager in massachusetts is fearing for his son's life after the boston marathon bombing. it comes after his son and another teenager were misidentified on several websites as those bombing suspects. coming up at 5:45 we'll let you hear what the teenager has to say about the pictures. a run to honor the boston marathon victims will begin in san francisco. here's a facebook page of the event. because of the big response to the event, the team moved the race to the ferry building in san francisco. that is where it will all begin at 7:00 this morning. the marathon team says if you plan to go participate in the run, wear the colors blue and yellow. they are the colors of the boston marathon.
5:41 am
make sure you stay right here for ktvu channel 2 all morning long for continuing team coverage of the latest developments of the boston marathon bombing case. you can also get updates at any time by going to our channel 2 website just look for the boston bombings tab right there on the front page. a scary story and a violent end to a little league game in vallejo as five and six-year- olds were diving for cover when bullets started to fly. at wednesday nights game two men were arguing in the parking lot when one drove away. the other opened fire riddling the car with bullets. the victim was able to get away but people at the game say this should be a safe place for children. >> no regard for life at all. this is what we have become. we can just shoot our bullets next to these children instead of playing and laughing. and as they leave, they leave in fear. >> for now the little league board has canceled all games.
5:42 am
the gunman is still on the loose. he's described as a mix raced man in his 20s. weighing about 250 pounds. if you have any information call vallejo police. time is 5:41. let's check back with sal. you are watching all of our traffic and the al plaza. >> we have breaking traffic news. we have a serious accident on mission boulevard at cherry way in hayward. it's reported as a vehicle that hit two pedestrians and some very serious injuries. we are finding out in the newsroom. so we will find out more. in fact, we have a crew headed to the scene. this is on mission boulevard on cherry way in hayward. we will find out more about what is going on there. we do know for sure a vehicle has hit two pedestrians and very serious injuries there. let's take a look at the commute on the toll plaza. the traffic is moving along

5:44 am
grip a little bit. it will reload and fire right back up on sunday. a slight west breeze. a little cooler coast and bay. 60s coast. 70s bay and upper 70s and low to mid 80s. especially sunday will be a little warmer. today sunny, warm, and nice. with that westerly breeze we see temps coming down. so 60s. upper 60s and 70s coast and bay. mid 70s and you get far enough away upper 70s and low 80s. we will hold things here today and tomorrow. and it does look warmer sunday and early next week. 5:44 is the time right now. if you were just joining us we are following that breaking news in the boston bombing case. we want to take you back there live to the scene where you see pretty serious intense police activity. one suspect was killed. the second is on the run. again police activity right now. also bay area garbage workers showing their spot for striking worker in the midwest. this could mean three bay area
